Jazz Alley offers intimacy, great lighting and comfy seating as well as first-class jazz acts (some recent appearances include Lucy Woodward, The Manhattan Transfer and The Average White Band). The food is varied and tasty. If you’re in the mood for a great steak, try the New York sirloin or if Mediterranean is more your thing go with the lamb curry.

Lucid offers live jazz Wednesday through Saturday with no cover charge. There is also a happy hour at Lucid from 5 to 8:30 p.m. And again from 12 to 1:30 a.m. Making Lucid one of the more affordable places in town to watch a jazz show if you time it right. Just be advised that Lucid is also one of the smaller venues on this list, and it’s best to get there early if you need to snag a seat.
